Re Michael`s -log- command: This will only work for Stata users who do not
customarily keep a log of everything they do, started by the -profile.do-.
For the others, you have to add the -name()- option to the -log- command to
make this work...

I'm a little surprised by some of the more complex answers given on
this thread -- perhaps I am misunderstanding what looks to be a fairly
simple question.
Babak:
Martin's suggestion to use -quietly- seems to me to be one half of the
solution you seek. The other half is its counterpart, -noisily-:
// Begin example
quietly {
log using quiet_noise.log, text replace
sysuse auto
noisily: regress price mpg foreign
log close
}
// End example
Note that only the results of the -regress- command are displayed, and
not the call to the -regress- command itself. Is that something like
what you are looking for?
Note also that if you look at the file "quiet_noise.log" with a plain
text editor, you'll see that it only contains the results of the
commands you precede with -noisily:- . This log file might be more
useful for you than (say) copying and pasting from the Results window,
should you have some post-processing of the output in mind. Using -
estout- or a similar command is arguably an even better way to control
what you output and how it looks, especially for inclusion in
professional documents.
Hope this helps,
Mike
